Billecart-Salmon Elisabeth Salmon

Cuvee: Prestige Cuvée, Rosé
Vintage: 2002
Created in 1988 as a tribute to the co-founder Elisabeth Salmon, this rosé cuvée distinguishes itself through its intensity and elegant flavours. This rare wine subtly offers the signature of the best Pinot Noir and Chardonnay terroirs that have been carefully mastered from an exceptional harvest.

The Blend
Pinot Noir and Chardonnay

Tasting Notes
This vintage stands out for its amazing coppery-pink glints underscored by string of pearls and a lasting but fine and delicate mousse.

Crisp red berries, citrus peel and stone fruits. Sensation of a rich and aromatic generosity: fresh figs, white peach, peony. Fine and ripe olfactive notes, respectfully softening the distinctive perfume of summer fruits and wild strawberries

An ample and rich character unveiling the soft spices of tangy mandarine and the persistant flavours of roses. Very long and complex in mouth, this cuvée impresses by its persistence.

Food Pairing
Marries well with beautiful creamy poultry, roast veal and poached peaches.

Serve at 11-12°

Can be laid down for 10 to 15 years.
